Taken over the summer. It’s an in-between season here – the fall color is mainly gone, but it’s still warm, no hard frosts or snow yet.

  1. Thanks – finding the right role for the background elements is what makes a simple image like this challenging. My favorite gambit these days is vaguery, melting the background stuff so it’s out of focus.

  2. Vaguery. 🙂 I like the sound of that, Tom. 🙂 I like the look of this too. I think the balance between the subject and the oof background blooms are very nice. It gives one a sense of the shape of the flower stalk without demanding too much attention.
